New Term Rush - School Furniture for Sale from Stock

Monday, 1 August 2011  |  Admin

Every year the largest UK school furniture manufacturers are presented with large orders for school tables and chairs. Kirkhouse keep up with the rush!

Our own factory manufactures for many school furniture suppliers in the UK and abroad. We produce thousands of stacking plastic chairs for schools and hundreds of school desks and stacking tables. Our most popular stock items are the Advanced stacking plastic chair in Black and our school stacking desks in 1200 x 600mm table top size.

We aim to keep full stock of both items in key colours. Chair and Table stock is held throughout the year, however we're at our quietest after Christmas: At this time we set about planning for the year ahead; improving furniture sales standards, furniture dispatch and delivery methods and most enjoyable of all - finalising and introducing our new school furniture ranges.

Secondary School - quick delivery at peak times

We don't want to disappoint customers at any time. Our aim is to deliver quality school chairs and tables as quickly as possible in excellent condition, and if we cannot achieve this through our excellent furniture delivery systems, then we will advise this before a furniture order is placed.

Some school furniture suppliers struggle to achieve customer satisfaction during the new term rush - and frankly it's not surprising. In keeping stock of key products, we reach the widest number of school customers. Customers looking for school furniture in particular colours and sizes may do well to order in May or June where possible.

Our school furniture sales office is able to advise excellent delivery standards on all items at this time. Whether your school requires the latest EN1729 classroom stacking chair, cheap school stacking chairs, or extra-long stacking tables in sky blue-pink, we can achieve quick delivery without difficulty in any month besides August / September.

Nursery and Primary School quick delivery

Our stock of childrens chairs and tables is also widely affected by the New Term school furniture rush. Kirkhouse Advanced Childrens stacking chair is usually available from stock, and our Postura Plus childrens chair is also very popular and available from stock throughout the year.

Children's tables are usually longer in manufacture and not as easy to store as children's chairs - as such customers requiring children's tables should order as early as possible for August / September delivery.

Kirkhouse Childrens Soft Play is usually available from stock also - you can see the range in our online furniture shop.

Non-School furniture deliveries

It may seem as though Kirkhouse only supply School furniture, however we are also a leading commercial furniture supplier to the NHS, MOD, local council (including Community Centre and Village Hall) and Charities. These furniture customers do not have new term requirements, however they are effected by the New Term school furniture rush.

Community Centres and Village Hall's are most likely to require specific fabric colours and consequently should add a few weeks on to our standard delivery times.

Customers requiring banquet chairs, upholstered plastic chairs or upholstered office chairs in particular should be prepared for delays in September. The Kirkhouse online furniture shop will guide you through our excellent range of commercial furniture, however you may need to contact our furniture sales office if you have an early delivery deadline.

Commercial furniture - quick delivery tip

Whatever your requirements, if you're struggling to meet your furniture delivery deadline, you might consider commercial folding chairs and tables.

Kirkhouse offer a comprehensive range of folding tables and chairs: Due to their compact nature, folding chairs and tables are very easy to stock at low cost.

Our most popular stock folding table is the Gopak Contour C/AB2: The Gopak folding table range is very popular with Schools, from Primary School through Secondary and College; our Gopak folding tables may be found in most schools throughout the UK.

Gopak folding tables are incredible strong, lightweight and available in a range of sizes and colours.

The most popular stock folding chair available from Kirkhouse, is the 2200 series commercial folding chair.
